News in Brief: Home Jersey Leaks, No Tailgating at TCF, and More

by on 17 February 2017

Potential leak of the home jersey before Minnesota United FC’s jersey reveal

Both Minnesota’s home and away jerseys will be revealed at the Machine Shop in Minneapolis at 6:00 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 17, but there is an image floating around the internet of what is thought to be the home shirt.

The club has a piece running through the brief history of soccer jerseys to put its kit reveal in context.

It’s official: no tailgating at Minnesota United matches at TCF Bank Stadium

While we suspected as much for a while when information about parking for season ticket holders came out, it’s been confirmed by Andy Greder that there will be no tailgating allowed in University of Minnesota lots before United games.

I know for many fans that tailgating was a big part of their fun on gamedays up in Blaine. It’ll be interesting to see what kinds of workarounds will be made by the larger supporters groups and people interested in tailgating.

Med City FC secures partnership with Mayo Clinic Sports Medicine

Louis Garcia reported for FiftyFive.One that Med City will not only benefit financially from the partnership, but will receive performance, nutrition, and sports psychology services from the renowned medical practice and research group.

Med City also announced the signing of its first player, Midhat Mujic. The Bosnian immigrant turned Rochester local turned out for Minnesota United’s reserve team in the Premier League of America last season.
